Richmond is a city of many characteristics. While it is the site of many historical events, it is also known for the local cuisine, the growing job market, and the spectacular views from the James River. The University of Richmond and VCU draw a large crowd of young part-time residents, but the city has something to offer for anyone. Each of Richmond’s surrounding neighborhoods exudes personality, as they are exciting but still contain their historic charm.
